Just when you think you have seen every notebook cooler design conceivable short of using Dyson to manufacture them, there is always someone who will come along and prove to you that there are still some tricks in that magic bag to help improve on something that has been burning laps around the globe for quite a few years. I mean, we have seen large fan versions, versions with fans that could be placed anywhere you needed them, ones with fancy lights, and even a sad attempt from one company to add audio to a model to try to gain some of that market share of people who are seeking better active cooling for their notebook PCs.
One thing I have yet to see from any company is a way to address the air flow after it leaves the fan. Now I could get into a whole discussion of how most fans that are sold today work, but let me compare things simply for you. Think about it like this - most fans sold will put out a good amount of air flow, but without direction, it sort of makes a mushroom cloud of that air flow once it leaves the fan. This means that most of the air provided, even in a limited space, will waste most of that air as it escapes around what you are intending to cool. There are special fans being made now to help direct that air flow, but those usually come with a pretty hefty cost, and no one wants to spend more than $30 to $40 for a notebook cooler, since most of them don't perform so well anyways.
So, without breaking the bank to put in some high dollar version of fans, what other way could this have been addressed? Well, Thermaltake has delivered the Allways Control notebook cooler that offers a unique, but painfully obvious solution to addressing the air flow out of a normal fan, and to do so they are incorporating louvers. Indeed, something that simple and obvious is one way of addressing this issue, and I am really shocked it took this long for someone to try it out.
Now that isn't all Thermaltake brings to the table is directional air flow, but to learn about the rest of what the Always Control notebook cooler has to offer, you will just have to continue reading to find out the added features.
